"bayoulubejim I actually read that whole thread a few weeks ago and its pretty cool but practically the opposite of what I have planned for my C70. I am actually going to be gearing it back down slightly for more torque/hill climbing ability. Where I am planning to go, I have heard that a bash guard is pretty much a necessity so it will definitely stay. I actually wouldn't mind upgrading to a slightly larger piston/cylinder, but the engine has been so darn reliable for so many miles that I am probably not going to mess with it."
Go into more detail on what you are planning to do.
Where? Lots of dirt? How long? Far?
Bigger bore and upgraded clutch will make things easier. Just saying.....
